Just After Sunset | Stephen King
Pickpick

Yay, finished Just After Sunset, missed the #losersclub date by quite a bit 🤣. I‘m not a big short story fan, but this is The King, so I enjoyed it. My absolute favorite was N. It was wonderfully, stressful because I could see myself easily slipping down that rabbit hole. In the author‘s note he mentioned “The Great God Pan” as inspo. This is a book I recently heard about but decided not to add to my TBR. Of course now I have to read it.

5feet.of.fury I had read that with #losersclub and totally forgot about N being inspired by The Great God Pan, which I have also not read, but read a reimagining of 2w
Reggie Is N the one about the ocd people trying to keep out inter dimensional monsters with their repetitive rituals? Cause I loved that one. 2w
NikkiM5 @Reggie yup, that‘s N. I still think about it 🤣 2w
NikkiM5 @5feet.of.fury oh wow These Fleeting Shadows sound really good. And it would cover my book about inheritance for the 52 Book Club. Thank you! 2w

What a storyteller, Rage (1977 my birth year 🎊) is classic King and I did not want to put this book down. But I had to often, because no one wants this crap in their head right before bed, especially if you‘re a vivid dreamer like me. Next up is Night Shift (1978)

So I assume this is an unpopular opinion, but I was not a fan of the tagged.

The book started off great but I felt it dragged on and then on some more.

I did finish it, but I will not continue the series.

March‘s #nywd22 is “The Only Good Indians” thanks @Readergrrl

wordslinger42 I bailed on this one. It's definitely an unpopular opinion, but you're not alone! 13mo
Readergrrl @NikkiM5 I hope you like The Only Good Indians! It really stuck with me. Horror mixed with indigenous folklore and storytelling. I went to an author talk at the Mark Twain House here in CT and met the author, Stephen Graham Jones. His discussion of his writing inspiration and history was fascinating. Very cool! 13mo
NikkiM5 @Readergrrl I am very excited to read it. Thank you 😊 13mo

#bookspinbingo After reading a Sandman Volume, I was curious about an actual photo used in the comic. I found out from a friend it was the tagged author. I wanted to read his work after reading and hearing descriptions of the author. Chesterton is quoted often and had a dedication from Gaiman & Pratchett:

The authors would like to join the demon Crowley in dedicating this book to the memory of G.K. Chesterton, a man who knew what was going on

Readergrrl I read Sing, Unburied, Sing at the height of the protests in Minnesota after George Floyd‘s murder. The thoughts of the ghosts (theoretical or not) we encounter every day haunted me while I watched the news those weeks. Tonight I listen to the reports of the trial of the three remaining men involved and I can‘t help but think that the wheels of justice are tortuously slow. 14mo

My greatest achievement was recognizing my own potential. Greatest challenge was/is not making excuses for people and accepting them as they are.

I read some awesome books, but I have to pick Devolution.

In 2022, I want to deepen the awesome, new friendships I have made in 2021 and to grow my circle even more.

Excellent book on how the mind works. If you enjoy self-help books on behavior and decision-making. Or if you‘re curious why others (and myself 😅) act ridiculous at times, I highly suggest the tagged. The Chimp Paradox is a lesson on why we act/react in certain ways, and why we don‘t have to.

“Managing your impulsive, emotional Chimp as an adult will be one of the biggest factors determining how successful you are in life.”

Nice, easy read about a time travel enabled coffee chair. I gave it a so-so but I intend to read the next book in the series. No characters to fall deep into care with, but I did like that it was a short and got to the point quickly.
